Fussy and Fancy Challenge # 119-"Words-it is about feeling"

Good Friday morning all!!  Hope that you're all preparing for a FABULOUS weekend!!

To view my FIRST blog-a-versary post go HERE!!

Today we begin a super easy new challenge at Fussy and Fancy...we want you to use your words...LOL!!!  How easy is that!  Our WONDERFUL Annie is the hostess for this challenge!!

And we have the FABULOUS Marianne Designs as our sponsor for this challenge!!  So put on your thinking caps...let's get creative with your words/sentiments!
I have a stash of sentiment stamps that I am ashamed to say I very rarely I dug them out and used two wonderful sentiment stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps...I rooted out some other stamps that I haven't used and went with a Besties image...and used three Marianne Designs die cuts!!  The papers are one of my favourite Maja papers...both front and back!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view and slide show...
I used Go Kreate #380004 XXL Frames Frilly #4 to make the opening of the card...
I cut the window out with Marianne Designs CR1259...

the flourishes and flowers were made with Marianne Designs #LR0112...

 the front sentiment is "Gentle as a Butterfly" by Rubbernecker Stamps...

the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch...

 the window open to show this sweet little Bestie "Butterfly Betsy"...

 the inside sentiment is another Rubbernecker Stamp "A True Friend"...
